MY SPECIALTIES

INDIVIDUAL THERAPY

Sometimes the demands of life can seem overwhelming.  The stress can interfere with normal day-to-day functions.  Therapy can help sort out the emotion and help restore balance in your life.

SIGNIFICANT LIFE TRANSITIONS

Whether you’re changing jobs, planning for a baby, or moving to a new city, even positive change can be stressful. Therapy provides support and reassurance during this difficult time.

COUPLES THERAPY

Relationship stress can have a tremendous impact on your overall well-being. Many couples benefit from working with a professional who can shed insight into problematic relationship patterns. In therapy, you can work on communication and intimacy issues and restore happiness in your relationship.

GRIEF AND LOSS

Although death is inevitable, that doesn’t mean the experience doesn’t hurt. Grief therapy helps you work through these challenging feelings. If you’re struggling with feeling like things are hopeless, it can provide a roadmap for healing.

DEPRESSION

Depression can make ordinary tasks feel impossible. When left untreated, it can affect your work, relationships, and self-esteem. Therapy helps you challenge your negative thinking and implement new ways to cope with your feelings.

TRAUMA

Trauma can impact every area of life functioning. Furthermore, at least one in 11 people will be diagnosed with PTSD at some point during their lifetime. If you’re struggling with trauma, therapy can help you process your emotions, work through your fears, and develop a new sense of meaning.

TEEN AND ADOLESCENT CONCERNS

It’s no secret that teens are under enormous pressure. Although young people struggle with mental health concerns, they don’t usually receive adequate support. Therapy can help with issues related to self-esteem, peers and relationships, and family problems

PERSONALITY DISORDERS

Personality disorders refer to conditions like narcissistic personality disorder, borderline personality disorder, and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder. Therapy helps you find healthy ways to cope with your condition.

FAMILY THERAPY

Even when we love them, families can be our greatest stressors. Therapy can help you work on boundaries and healthier communication. You may also benefit from family therapy to improve relationship satisfaction between members.

SPECIAL NEEDS ADVOCACY

Children with disabilities and special health care needs have a right to public education. Sometimes, the process of working with schools can be confusing.  This is when you need Michael Kinser to advocate for your child. He provides educational consulting, disciplinary appeals, and special education/504 advocacy.

IT’S NOT LATE. YOU’RE NOT ALONE. THERE’S ALWAYS HOPE.
